Rajasthan is known for its wildlife sanctuaries and bird parks offering a wide range of beautiful creatures and now Jhalana Forest will also offer a similar experience to the tourists. The Jhalana Forest is going to offer full day and half day leopard safaris from today i.e. 5th December 2017. This means that if you are touring the state, you might be lucky enough to spot leopards in the jungles without any enclosures or walls.
As the forests of Jhalana are abundantly found with a considerable amount of leopards, the authorities decided to offer full day leopard safaris to let people have a look at them. The aim is to make the place a suitable winter holiday destination for tourists. The jungles are just 3.5 kms away from Jaipur International Airport. It’s said that the forest is spread across more than 21 square kilometers and is said to own 20-25 leopards.
This will be an exciting opportunity for wildlife lovers. In the safari, maximum of 5 people can board a gypsy and go for a full day safari for INR 10,000. A for the half day, the cost of the ticket will be INR 5,000. Tourists will also enjoy their tea breaks at ‘Shikar Hodi’, the post which was regarded as a hunting lodge by many Maharajas in the 1900s.
The aim of this initiative is to preserve the leopards and make improvements with respect to tourism in lines with Project Leopard by the Rajasthan Government. The Shikar Hodi spot has now been maintained with fully functional toilets, reclining chairs, benches, and umbrellas.
The place offers a great opportunity to spot leopards across the 10 km radius of the reserve. For this, a third safari track has also been added. Besides, the authorities are constantly monitoring illegal entrants to the park and work is also going to build enclosures for ensuring the safety of other animals in the park.
